Discovering the Secrets of Longevity - Two Scientists are Finding Answers

Two prominent scientists in the fields of anti-aging and human longevity, Dr. Leonid A. Gavrilov and Dr. Natalia S. Gavrilova, are finding answers into the science of life extension. Both research scientists are part of the Center on Aging department of the NORC/University of Chicago.

From their website:

"We believe that the prospects for life extension depend on our own behavior by the mechanism of self-fulfilling prophecy.

Numerous studies demonstrate that many manifestations of aging can be postponed or even reversed, and that lifespan can be significantly extended in experimental animals. Moreover, our own studies found remarkable plasticity of human longevity, and suggest that there may be a significant potential for further extension of human lifespan."

It looks to me from Drs. Gavrilovs' work that they are using extensive research and DNA findings to theorize the probability that humans will extend their lifespan in the future. They are also scientists that add more scientific evidence of the possibility that immortality is possible.

The Gavrilovs' extensive book on their findings is titled: Biology of Life Span: A Quantitative Approach.
